Description: Nestled in Siesta Key Village, The Cottage is a casual and quaint, old Florida beach house with a menu that will never disappoint. Our fusion cuisine appeals to locals and globe trekkers alike with Latin American, Asian and Hawaiian influences. We offer indoor dining and two options for outdoor seating--a front patio that overlooks The Siesta Key Village, and a garden-setting back patio with live music nightly 7pm-close. Happy Hour runs Monday - Friday from 11:00am-6:00pm. Known for attention to fine food, lovely cocktails and great service, The Cottage has quickly become everything that is raved about on TripAdvisor and more.

Planned to dine across the street, however they weren't open on Sunday. We drove by the Cottage and noticed they had free valet (parking on siesta is scarce) so we decided to give it a shot and we're glad we did! The valet was very friendly and suggested the salmon. As soon as I walked inside I loved it! Such... More

The locals come here for breakfast and with super friendly, down home feel is very evident. Good food, better coffee, nice selection. fluffy pancakes and reasonable pricing for large quantity. Much better than broken egg. Highly recommend this place.

We walked by this one day and thought it was just a beach village bar. Later in our visit we read some restaurant reviews and decided to try it out. The tapas were very good with a good selection. Service was also very good and the waiter went out of his way to explain each dish and the distinct flavors... More

Looking for a place with romance on Siesta Key...this is it. Their tropical Key West Setting out back is the best. Relax and enjoy one of their specialty drinks as we did and sample a couple appetizers which are vastly different than the traditional selections. Our server was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects and very efficient. This is one of... More

This is a great spot for groups as the best choices on the menu are tapas. You will want to order more than you can eat. The lobster bisque was one of the we have ever eaten. The dipping sauce for the calamari was delicious. If you crave a salad, try the Patio Salad, which you can order as a... More

Inspired menu. Fresh! Love lobster sliders. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Even if we don't eat there we always stop to have a cocktail at the bar with our favorite bartender Adrian

My husband and I decided to try this for our first night dinner upon arrival to Siesta Key. What a wonderful choice...great food, excellent service, and enjoyable music, sitting out on a back patio. We started with tuna tacos, very good!, then I had the salmon and my husband tried the skirt steak. Both choices were perfect...my husband could have... More
